And now a word, in uncouth rhyme

Of what shall be in future time.

Then upside down the world shall be
And gold found at the root of tree
All England's sons that plough the land
Shall oft be seen with Book in hand.

The poor shall now great wisdom know
Great houses stand in far-flung vale
All covered o'er with snow and hail.
A carriage without horse will go
Disaster fill the world with woe.

In London, Primrose Hill shall be
In centre hold a Bishop's See
Around the world men's thoughts will fly
Quick as the twinkling of an eye.

And water shall great wonders do
How strange. And yet it shall come true.
Through towering hills proud men shall ride
No horse or ass move by his side.

Beneath the water, men shall walk
Shall ride, shall sleep, shall even talk.
And in the air men shall be seen
In white and black and even green.

A great man then, shall come and go
For prophecy declares it so.
In water, iron, then shall float
As easy as a wooden boat
Gold shall be seen in stream and stone
In land that is yet unknown.

And England shall admit a Jew
You think this strange, but it is true
The Jew that once was held in scorn
Shall of a Christian then be born.

A house of glass shall come to pass
In England. But Alas, alas
A war will follow with the work
Where dwells the Pagan and the Turk.

And wives shall fondle cats and dogs And men live much the same as hogs. For then shall mighty wars be planned And fire and sword shall sweep the land. And roaring monsters with man atop Does seem to eat the verdant crop And men shall fly as birds do now And give away the horse and plough. Then when the fiercest strife is done England and France shall be as one. For in those wondrous far off days The women shall adopt a craze To dress like men. Then love shall die and marriage cease And nations wane as babes decrease. The British olive shall next then twine In marriage with a German vine. When North shall thus divide the south And Eagle build in Lion's mouth Then tax and blood and cruel war Shall come to every humble door. . These states will lock in fiercest strife And seek to take each other's life. In nineteen hundred and twenty six Build houses light of straw and sticks. They'll ride astride with brazen brow As witches do on broomstick now. Three times shall lovely sunny France Be led to play a bloody dance Before the people shall be free Three tyrant rulers shall she see. Men walk beneath and over streams Fulfilled shall be their wondrous dreams. There'll be a sign for all to see Be sure that it will certain be. and trousers wear And to cut off their locks of hair. Three rulers in succession be Each springs from different dynasty.

and rapes and lies in blood And spilling blood by mankind's hands Will stain and bitter many lands. thieves and spies. rushing in Will flood the lands with such a din That mankind cowers in muddy fen And snarls about his fellow men. And when the Dragon's tail is gone. he lies To kill marauders. and smiles. He bares his teeth and fights and kills And secrets food in secret hills And ugly in his fear. The tides will rise beyond their ken To bite away the shores and then The mountains will begin to roar And earthquakes split the plain to shore. And flooding waters. too late For mankind has earned deserved fate. Man forgets. For those who live the century through In fear and trembling this shall do. For storms will rage and oceans roar When Gabriel stands on sea and shore And as he blows his wondrous horn Old worlds die and new be born. Man flees in terror from the floods And kills. For seven days and seven nights Man will watch this awesome sight. deep drenched in blood shall die. When men like birds shall scour the sky Then half the world. and carries on To apply himself -. .too late. A fiery Dragon will cross the sky Six times before this earth shall die Mankind will tremble and frightened be For the sixth heralds in this prophecy. Flee to the mountains and the dens To bog and forest and wild fens. When pictures seem alive with movements free When boats like fishes swim beneath the sea.

those few to count. dry and bare Not every soul on Earth will die As the Dragon's tail goes sweeping by. But the land that rises from the sea Will be dry and clean and soft and free Of mankind's dirt and therefore be The source of man's new dynasty. Not every land on earth will sink But these will wallow in stench and stink Of rotting bodies of beast and man Of vegetation crisped on land. and serf. But it will be. Who survives this (unreadable) and then Begin the human race again. His masked smile -. stark. And those that live will ever fear The Dragons tail for many year But time erases memory You think it strange. And lands will crack and rend anew You think it strange.his tail will crack Upon the earth and rend the earth And man shall flee. Lord. But not on land already there But on ocean beds. But slowly they are routed out To seek diminishing water spout And men will die of thirst before The oceans rise to mount the shore. And they will send the Dragon back To light the sky -.oh such a tiny band Will have to leave their solid mount And span the earth.his false grandeur Will serve the Gods their anger stir. It will come true. And before the race is built anew A silver serpent comes to view And spew out men of like unknown To mingle with the earth now grown . And in some far off distant land Some men -. King.

Three sleeping mountains gather breath And spew out mud. And Christian one fights Christian two And nations sigh. Oh many signs for all to see The truth of this true prophecy. In lands as yet to me unknown. And physics find no remedy For this is worse than leprosy. yet nothing do And yellow men great power gain From mighty bear with whom they've lain. The signs will be there for all to read When man shall do most heinous deed Man will ruin kinder lives By taking them as to their wives.
